Very historic area and Fort Worth is really putting effort into maintaining the history. Twice daily cowboys drive longhorn steers down the street, great for close-up photos. Numerous stores and gift shops in the area.

Great place to visit for Rawhide fans or cattle drovers! The daily movement of cattle attracts large crowds and is worth a viewing too

I'm not sure. We were there in the summer. I do know that you can walk up and buy a ticket. At least you could when I was there.
